Tasting Notes

Ruby red in color, the 2010 Vino Nobile shows red fruit and spices on its nose along with aromas of sweet tobacco which fuse with notes of cherries and black currants. The mineral sensations of the wine, together with very well balanced tannins, accompany the entire flow over the palate, all the way through to the long and tasty finish and aftertaste.

            [Notes2] => The La Braccesca farm, which extends over an overall surface area of 420 hectares (1050 acres), is
composed of two separate blocks. The historic nucleus of the property is located in Montepulciano
and consists of 103 hectares (some 255 acres) of vineyard
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => The winter of 2009-2010 was very rainy and, in terms of
temperature, quite cold as well. Bud break took place
towards mid-April for the early-ripening grape varieties
and in early May the for later-ripening grapes. Frequent
rain during the period of flowering (the first week in June)
had no damaging effects on bud set. A cool summer and a
warm, dry September led to a slow and gradual ripening of
the grapes, allowing them to be picked rather late in the
season and over an extended period of time, assisting an
excellent ripening of all the different grape varieties.
Picking began in mid-September and only terminated
towards the end of October. A careful and meticulous
cultivation of the vines and an equally attentive
management of their canopy during the growing season,
along with the favorable climate, led to uniformly high
quality in all of the varieties, and these positive
characteristics can be found in the finished wines as well
            [MediaNotes] => 
            [ServingSuggestion] => 
            [WineMakingNotes] => The warm days of summer, accompanied as they were by cool evenings and nights, led to a perfect
ripening of the grape bunches and, at the same time, the formation of fresh and fruity aromas.
After picking, which took place in late September and early October, the grapes were destemmed
and then pressed. The period of skin contact during fermentation lasted fifteen days, and at the end
of the fermentation the wine went into large oak casks where it was put through a complete
malolactic fermentation. The total aging period in oak lasted approximately twelve months. The
wine was then bottled and given an additional twelve months of bottle age before commercial
release.

About this product +

Producer >

Sitting on 508 hectares of which 340 are planted to vines, the wines of La Braccesca represent very different styles within the Antinori portfolio. Owned by Antinori since 1990, this estate strives to promote the individuality and high quality of the wines it produces. Seperated into two distinct blocks, the estate’s vineyards represent both Cortona and special parcels from Montepulciano – Cervognano, Santa Pia and Gracciano. The Syrah in Cortona is grown on specific clay soils, lending weight and concentration to the wines from here. In the winery sympathetic use of French, Hungarian and American oak add to the complexity of these wines.

Viticulture >

The La Braccesca farm, which extends over an overall surface area of 420 hectares (1050 acres), is composed of two separate blocks. The historic nucleus of the property is located in Montepulciano and consists of 103 hectares (some 255 acres) of vineyard

Winemaking >

The warm days of summer, accompanied as they were by cool evenings and nights, led to a perfect ripening of the grape bunches and, at the same time, the formation of fresh and fruity aromas. After picking, which took place in late September and early October, the grapes were destemmed and then pressed. The period of skin contact during fermentation lasted fifteen days, and at the end of the fermentation the wine went into large oak casks where it was put through a complete malolactic fermentation. The total aging period in oak lasted approximately twelve months. The wine was then bottled and given an additional twelve months of bottle age before commercial release.
